It's recommend you have a 2 GiB USB, though it may work with less. I'm not sure 997 MB will be enough. Though the website says 966 MB
, the notation should actually read 966 MiB
. That is actually 1013 MB. (1 MB = 1,000,000 bytes; 1 MiB = 1,048,576 bytes.)
UNetBootin may work fine. Linux Mint recommends the Universal USB Installer for Windows users: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal- ... -as-1-2-3/
. Step 1 is to select the Linux Mint version you want to install, step 2 to browse to where you have the ISO.
